I'm in southwest VA, Pulaski to be exact.

The guitar player can be whatever they choose to be (lead or rhythm) or we could alternate lead playing.

Some of my influences include:

Metallica
Megadeth
Anthrax
Iron Maiden
Pantera
KISS
AC/DC
Black Sabbath
Motorhead
Children of Bodom

Hey dude, I know I'm not close enough, but I'm from Clintwood in Dickenson County. Just thought I'd say hi, and good luck with your band. Its hard to find people who play anything other than guitar around here.
